Chia seeds are typically used as a thickening product because they create a gel-like substance when combined with liquids. They contain protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber. Chia seeds are great to add to oatmeal, smoothies, puddings, and cereals. They contain 5 grams of omega-3 fatty acids, which play an important role in energy production and inflammation reduction. Two tablespoons of this super seed contains 3 grams of plant-based protein. They also provide a healthy dose of fiber, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, calcium, and iron. You can typically find them in a bag sold in your local grocery store.

Let’s get started on our recipe! Whip this up by mixing the almond milk with the maple syrup and vanilla in a large bowl, glass, or jar. Then whisk in the chia seeds. Mix well until the chia seeds are evenly dispersed. Place this in the fridge and let it sit overnight. When ready, mix it all together one more time with a spoon. Now let’s get ready to assemble our breakfast jar! Start by adding the blackberries to the bottom of your jar, and mash them up with a fork. Then add the chia pudding. Layer with your favorite smoothie blend. For this recipe, we blended blood orange, berries, and almond milk. Top with pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, and hemp seeds for a hearty start to your day!

      hey! we typically don’t calculate calories because the apps out there aren’t always accurate. an estimate off the top of my head is that this jar has around 400 calories. xo
